Man United target superb £188m pair as part of ASTOUNDING attacking transfer coup
Manchester United are interested in signing two superstars which would bring more versatility to the team’s attack.
Antoine Griezmann and Paulo Dybala are part of Jose Mourinho’s wish list and could see the club splash £188 million for the duo.
The United boss targeted Atletico Madrid’s top striker during the summer transfer window but could not secure a move for the Frenchman. The Spanish giants are serving out a ban by UEFA and unable to sign new players until January. Griezmann was convinced to stay this past summer, but Atletico may struggle in the future to keep their 26-year-old star.

The Red Devils will need to reach Griezmann’s £88m release clause, while his contract runs through 2022. Atletico Madrid signed Diego Costa, who will be eligible to play in January, which has given United hope of landing the French international.
Mourinho will also battle Real Madrid for Juventus star Dybala. The 23-year-old continues to shine in Seria A, and a top choice for the European giants. United chief Ed Woodward has spoken to Dybala’s representatives and expressed great interest in the Argentinian international.
Woodward has a good relationship with Juventus’s general manager Beppe Marotta, and worked together on Paul Pogba’s £89m deal in 2016. The Italian champions could capitalise on an even bigger deal, if Dybala becomes available.
